Welcome to 6th Grade Science!
This class is going to be FUN! We study many different and interesting aspects of science: water (H2O) quality; testing and conservation, weather and space, energy and chemistry.
During the entire semester we study the scientific method, as it pertains to answering an unknown question. We practice our skills in: Observation, Inquiry (the question/ what do we want to learn about a topic), Hypothesis, Research, Experiment, Data, Analysis and Conclusion. These can be tough concepts for kids. Please talk to your child to see what he/she is learning
We start the year with the scientific method learning vocabulary as we conduct some activities/projects in class.
We will quickly move to a water study unit learning about what makes healthy water and how to check for it. We are planning on going on our water study field trip on October 3! This is an awesome field trip that concludes our water study unit. If you can chaperone this trip, and we will ask again, please consider making yourself available for it. It is an all day trip. We try to leave around 8:00 and return around 2:00.
